Carols by Candlelight

Home > Blog

A Christmas tradition, Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight on Christmas Eve is a wonderful event for families young and old. Whether you can make it to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl to sing along, or are enjoying the carols at home, the spirit of Christmas comes alive with your favourite presenters and songs.


This year, the stage will welcome Lisa Wilkinson and David Campbell to host the 10,000 plus people who will attend the event, and stars such as Marina Prior, Tim Campbell, Anthony Callea, Rob Mills, Kate Ceberano, Shaynna Blaze, the cast of Les Miserables and the National Boys Choir of Australia will entertain and enthral. Santa and other special guests will make an appearance too.


With traditional carols and modern interpretations, you are invited to singalong, share in the magic of the event and light a candle to support Vision Australia.

Commencing at 8pm (gates open at 4.30pm), a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) is $180 (Children under 3 admitted free.) More information on ticketing can be found here.

Federation Square will also host a live site, when you can pull up a deck chair and enjoy the carols on the big screen. This is a free event.
